From Privacy to Fitness: Top 5 Upcoming Token Unlocks to Watch

The release of previously locked-up tokens, known as token unlocks, is a closely watched event in the cryptocurrency market as it can impact the price direction of various digital assets. 

Token Unlocks Could Impact the Crypto Market

The cryptocurrency market is constantly evolving, and one of the most closely watched events is the release of previously locked-up tokens. Token unlocks occur when a project's team or investors release a portion of their tokens at the end of a vesting or lock-up period. 

While these tokens were previously restricted from being traded or transferred, their release into the market can lead to a significant increase in the supply of the cryptocurrency, often resulting in downward price pressure. As a result, token unlocks are typically considered bearish events, with newly released assets creating selling pressure and causing the price to fall.
